is -- who answer the answer and where do we find it? but i see things -- i've been with the defense department for 35 years. everything is sigh saturday silent. i'm hoping you will do something about that in the educational system. starting with -- [inaudible] >> yeah. a lot there. both -- a couple of things. ultimately the question is what do we value? what skills are we trying to teach? .. >> it is clearly not the norm. it is clearly more the exception. i always get asked, what's the appropriate federal role. i think about that every day, what's our role, the state role, the local role. one of the best uses of time and resources, i think, is for us to shine a spotlight on best practices to help with more resources, with more flexibility, whatever it might be. so wherever we're seeing those skill sets being taught, shining a spotlight, convening groups of teachers and principals to talk about those things, we think, are really, really important. so we can help to try and build that culture. long way to go. the other thing that's emerging that i'm really interested in that's related
in northern virginia, technology and defense jobs, and using them as pawns to a demand higher taxes or a budget deal. now, these are tough times, but out of adversity, we can create a more confident, caring, and prosperous america, and that is a positive agenda i will forward to discussing today, and the ida is what is best for the virginia businesses. >> governors, thanks to both of you. this is a high-profile senate race for the nation, certainly very important for the commonwealth, and it is also occurring in the shadow of the presidential debate, so i want to ask you about 47% we heard about this week. governor romney in summer marks at a fundraiser taped earlier this year talked about how there is some 47% of the people that do not pay federal income tax. he said that he believes they are -- that they feel they are victims, that the government needs to take care of them, and that they are entitled to housing, you name it. part of that 47 percent said. what would you do about that? do you think that should change? and what do you think, generally, about too many virginians, too
programs for defense companies, transportation companies. they get federal dollars so they can do these programs. these programs go away january 1st pairs of these companies including defense, health care, transport will have to notify employees by november, the end of october to notify employees their jobs are cut. so in addition to the largest tax increase were going to see since world war ii, were also going to see a host of layoffs at year-end, all as a result of ignoring the fiscal class, which is why there is so much talk about it. so you know, i do think we are walking on shaky ground and unfortunately the president has been unable to provide the leadership required to get these two groups together, the right and the left. you know, part of the job of the commander-in-chief has to be to compromise and bring these two groups together. for congress to say we're going on vacation for five weeks and then come back and say we go away again until after the election, with nothing done about the fiscal class is truly irresponsible. and the fact that the leadership -- there is no le

these political games for the armed services. we need to have a strong economy and national defense. but the last thing we need to be doing is having these devastating cuts to our military readiness and that's what has to happen is stop these devastating cuts, come up with the cuts that have the right priority and make sure the men and women protecting our safety and our freedoms here have the best armments, the best equipment and making sure we get those good paying jobs and technology and defense here in virginia and not use then am a pon to raise taxes. >> no one's talking about using the military or veterans as pons, i mean, i haven't heard that stated except george kind of throw in that charge at me and that's the kind of charge that you ought to be more careful about. i take second to no one in appreciating the service of our folks in active service and in our military i was governor in the middle o two wars. our virginia guards people, 1,500 of them deployed. i went to the deployments and the wakes in afghanistan and i celebrate the fact that all units are home. we have to get to a resolve

by gutting the military, with the president's devastating defense cuts, by equivocating when you speak overseas about these issues, it projects weakness. when america projects weakness, our adversaries are more willing to test us. they have more incentive to attack us and our allies are less willing to trust us. >> republicans have been clamoring for more paul ryan on the campaign trail. romney and ryan campaigning together an illustration of that, although it's just for today. romney will continue campaigning in ohio tomorrow. but ryan will go elsewhere. standing in for mr. ryan, campaigning alongside romney tomorrow, the golden bear, ohio native and golf giant jack nicholas tomorrow. >> shep: polls are showing that governor remain knee is trailing in ohio and other battle ground states. what's the plan? >> well, jack nicholas couldn't hurt. but obviously the romney campaign recognizes that ohio really is their must win state. to that end today, the romney campaign's political director and their on-line internet director both came and talked to reporters today and made the argument th
the israeli budget by $200 million this year. we helped to create and put up israel's defense system. when israel was faced with the palestinians going to the united nations and asking for a unilateral declaration, there was one country that stood with israel and stopped that. that was the united states of america with me talking to the president of the united states making sure that did not happen. >> thank you. the next question is directed at senator heller. >> to different degrees, nevada has a sense of just how devastating it can be to the state if we had a species list as an endangered species. economists say it could shut down our economic development. realistically, what can you do in the senate to prevent that from happening? >> for someone who grew up here hunting and fishing, i have a little bit of experience with this. , the sage grouse. it is not just a big issue for the state of nevada. we are talking an impact it would have agriculture, mining. it would be huge. i have put together a working group. i brought people together from both sides. we talk about the specific issue,
about that? >> they did put out a spokesman in defense of ambassador -- statement in defense of ambassador susan rice yesterday. it stems from a couple of sundays ago. she was on some of the sunday shows, including "meet the press" where she gave that explanation that this protest in benghazi started off as a protest against an american installation there, about that anti-islam video that denigrated the prophet mohammed and then spontaneo spontaneously turned into something more and may have included elements of more organized elements. and that's something that republicans say that susan rice intentionally lied about, the spokesman saying last night from the white house, the administration has -- thinks that susan rice has done an extraordinary job. it was not her personal opinion that she was putting forth on those sunday shows. >> all right. mike viqueira. thank you very much for that. important story this morning. >>> to front page politics new this morning, mitt romney says he's looking forward to the upcoming presidential debates, first one's on wednesday. >> i think it

the and -- the defense, people would be funneled into employment and it never, it has not achieved that. they have done their own thing, we talked about the problems of that. and the labor stuff has not got started because no product has got started. again, he said an academic exercise. i don't think it should be written off. i think it is continuing. and there is also, i would describe the main militia coalition view of the wac as a cynical cooperation. the deputy has an office in that building. i should have mentioned it in the question about soft power. it should not be written off. >> very quickly about the wac, there is some sensitivity about monsters., two big i am bringing the others but mainly to bring these two to the table so you can do with them because the future of libya will lay in the hands of these two if they become troublemakers. i think some of them looked at it seriously and they looked at some of the people and they looked at the personality and they said this is the muslim brotherhood. they want to control us and we do not want to deal with them. they looked at it from a personnel
